“#Trump’s only ‘liked’ tweet is about HBO’s ‘Insecure’ and Twitter is so confused”

Issa Rae and Donald Trump are trending topics on Twitter Monday morning.
President Donald Trump’s official Twitter account has only one “liked” tweet — and it’s about the HBO show “Insecure,” much to social media’s mass confusion.
Now in its fourth season and renewed through a fifth, the Emmy-nominated dramedy follows Issa Dee (played by the show’s co-creator Issa Rae) and focuses on the experience of a young black woman as she navigates love, life and her career.
The tweet that Trump liked, posted on Sunday night, is about Issa’s often rocky friendship with Molly (Yvonne Orji). It seems to express a sincere desire that these two women will get along.
“This is how I wanted tonight’s episode of insecure to end…Damn Molly” a fan tweeted, next to a gif of two women in a meadow.
Needless to say, Twitter is bewildered. The original tweet posted a follow up asking, “Chile… why this tweet sitting in y’all president’s likes?”
Actor-screenwriter Kumail Nanjiani — who recently starred opposite Rae in Netflix rom-com “The Lovebirds,” tweeted, “Well I found one thing I have in common with him: we’re both big fans of @IssaRae.”

For her part, Rae, 35, has not Tweeted about it on her own account, but she did acknowledge it in a response to a fan who pointed it out by writing, “What the f – – k is this?”
Fans were divided on whether it’s a case of an accidental click, whether a White House intern is the real culprit — or whether the commander-in-chief is truly just a fan of “Insecure.” As of Monday morning, the Trump administration has not yet responded to the brewing Twitter trend.
However, “the revelation that Trump watches ‘Insecure’ is so mind shattering I don’t know how to process this,” one fan wrote.
“Insecure” airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on HBO.
